It has been announced that DJ Khaled will perform at the Grand Final in the Overwatch League.
The Grandfinals will take place at the Barclays Center in New York on July 27th and DJ Khaled will play in front of the games on Saturday, July 28th.
Matches on Saturday kick off at 18:00, with DJ Khaled's set taking place before. Blizzard announced that the show would be streamed on Twitch, although it is not unclear whether DJ Khaled's set will be shown on any of the other platforms that the big finals themselves will appear on.
Musical performances on esport events are not unheard of, but they have usually been met with lukewarm reception. DJ Khaled is one of the big names to try to pull it off, but maybe he can set a new standard.
The Grand Final will be between London Spitfire and Philadelphia Fusion, the latter who denied the New York Excelsior the opportunity to compete in front of a home crowd.
As the lowest seed in playoffs, the two teams may not have come to likely finalists, especially against each other, but both London and Philadelphia were fired for the most important games of the season and blown to the Barclays Center. 1
